StockCall.com Provides Stock Research on Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd., Carnival Corp. Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., and Boyd Gaming Corp.

New York City, New York -- (May 24, 2013)

The economic recession in the U.S. post the financial crisis had a negative impact on resorts & casino operators. The slowdown in the world’s largest economy prompted several resort & casinos operators to explore other markets such as Macau. However, economic outlook in the U.S. has been improving since the start of this year. A last-minute fiscal cliff deal at the start of this year ended a great deal of uncertainty. What is more, the labor market in the U.S. is continuing to show signs of improvement. These trends should benefit resort & casino operators. On Thursday, May 23, 2013, shares in resort & casino operators ended mostly lower, tracking losses in the broad market, which slipped following the release of minutes of Federal Reserve’s most recent FOMC and some disappointing economic data from China. The major movers in the sector included Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd. (ADR) (NASDAQ: MPEL), Carnival Corporation (NYSE: CCL), Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE: RCL), and Boyd Gaming Corporation (NYSE: BYD).
